My friend held her baby's Christening do here. It was absolutely fantastic. Staff were so friendly & efficient. Food was great & so was the layout of the back room, they even made a play area for the little ones. Great effort guys, much appreciated for such a special occasion!

Haydon Bridge is off the A69 now but it's well worth taking a diversion to eat here. The food, mostly locally sourced was excellent, both meat and fish were cooked wonderfully. The Christmas Puddings were so good we bought two to take home! Due to sharing the restaurant with a large party service was a little slow, but well worth... More

We stopped in at the General Havelock Inn on our way to see Hadrian's Wall at the Housesteads Museum.This is an unassuming little inn from the outside but has a lovely ambience inside. We had a delightful Sunday dinner with our daughter, son-in-law, and our 2 y/o grandson. The staff was friendly and accommodating. For starters, we had the melon... More

We were visiting the area and this pub was listed as a Taste Card friendly Pub so we gave it a try. The food was superb and the staff very friendly even although it was Quiz Night and they were very busy.

We visited the General Havelock for Sunday lunch and it was head and shoulders above the other meals we had on our holiday. Had melon with white wine granita for starter - delicious. I had halibut for my main and my partner had roast beef - delicious. Then the trio of home made ice cream for dessert - delicious, and... More

Having done my research via TA we were expecting Good,Locally Sourced Home Cooked Food...We weren't disappointed. Starters-Crayfish Cocktail, Superb, better than the obligatory prawn cocktail. (We saw other guests have the... More

My parents held their golden wedding celebrations here. We had the restaurant booked out it was lovely. I had the roast lamb which was beautifully cooked so tasty, the roast potatoes were enormous which seemed a bit odd but to be honest it really didn't matter as they were delicious! The service was friendly and efficient. We had a lovely... More

This was my second visit to the General Havelock Inn, having called in the week before I and really enjoyed their food and drink I could hardly wait to pay a longer and more considered visit to this absolute gem. The bar area is charming and unspoilt, with plenty of friendly locals, and always an interesting real ale on tap... More

Delicious food, lovely staff and a nice setting with the River Tyne in the background. We used our Tastecard and got a three course Sunday lunch for three for £22. That is an absolute steal.
